If any one could help, I would really appreciate it.
I was driving my son to Mygym this morning and everything was completely normal, but when I got onto the highway for the last 5 minutes of the drive my car started making a loud fast rhythmic thumping sound. I thought it was my tire and slowed down to stop… and then in stopped. So I went a little faster and as soon as I hit 50, it started again. I slowed down and drove the rest of the way to my sons class and looked at my tires and they looked fine to me (I have no idea what a tire should look like, but I can tell if one is very flat… I think). I also looked under the car for any obvious debris or whatever and didn’t see anything.
We had our class and when I got back on the highway and accelerated to 50, it started back up again, so I slowly drove to our exit. By the time we were nearly home I wasn’t even thinking about the problem anymore, but in the 45 zone near our home it started thumping again… sure enough, I was going 50.
I made an appointment to get my car looked at, but it is not until Tuesday. If anyone has any idea what is wrong and what it is likely to cost, I would really appreciate your help. I am also wondering if it is safe to drive my car as long as I stay under 50? I have no other means of transportation and we need to go out pretty often (daily) for classes and therapies for my son. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
